icon_tip Hints


To easily compare edited images with the original, you should enable the Backup into subfolder option in the Image Options.


Never edit images without a backup, if you are not sure about your monitor settings, or if you are working in a very dark or very bright environment. If in doubt, regularly apply a monitor calibration tool.
